Maple Brook Farm (Westfield, MA)

Dates visited: December 16, 2015 and December 21, 2015

Tucked away one of the many side roads of West Springfield, MA, is an unexpected place.

The Maple Brook Farm is home to a variety of alpacas.  It’s not everyday that you get to see alpacas grazing from the road so I thought I would stop by.

They tend to cluster together so it was hard to take photos of them alone.

The driveway to the farm is usually open, at least during non holiday daylight hours.  When I went to visit, there was no staff or anyone else there but the public is welcome and there is no charge.  I just wish I knew what alpacas eat.  I would have brought them a treat.

The grounds of the farm are well groomed and there are many structures and statues that liven up the area.  It is definitely worth a visit.

About New England Nomad

Hi I'm Wayne. Welcome to my blog. I am a true New Englander through and through. I love everything about New England. I especially love discovering new places in New England and sharing my experiences with everyone. I tend to focus on the more unique and lesser known places and things in New England on my blog. Oh yeah, and I love dogs. I always try to include at least one dog in each of my blog posts. I discovered my love of photography a couple of years ago. I know, I got a late start. Now, I photograph anything that seems out of the ordinary, interesting, beautiful and/or unique. And I have noticed how every person, place or thing I photograph has a story behind it or him or her. I don't just photograph things or people or animals. I try to get their background, history or as much information as possible to give the subject more context and meaning. It's interesting how one simple photograph can evoke so much. I am currently using a Nikon D3200 "beginner's camera." Even though there are better cameras on the market, and I will upgrade some time, I love how it functions (usually) and it has served me well. The great thing about my blog is you don't have to be from New England, or even like New England to like my blog (although I've never met anyone who doesn't). All you have to like is to see and read about new or interesting places and things. Hopefully, you'll join me on my many adventures in New England! View all posts by New England Nomad
